Sanitizing Fruiting Chamber (FC)
« on: March 26, 2009, 11:27:22 AM »

What's everyone,
I've been reading this forum for many days now and I finally went out and got all my supplies today and dropped a letter in the mail to Ralphster Spores, I got the Cambodian on the way. I guess I have two questions:

1) Can I make my substrate and sanitize my jars and just wait for the spore syringe and then inoculate, or is it best to wait and have all materials on hand before the substrate is made?
2) I have a 52 quart clear storage bin that I'm going to make into a Shotgun FC, what kind of sterilization does it need, if any?

PW, Baph, & Fattrout: I've been following you guys and your knowledge is ridiculous! I look forward to your help.

Later,
Deadneck

-Its better to have everything on hand.

2) I have a 52 quart clear storage bin that I'm going to make into a Shotgun FC, what kind of sterilization does it need, if any?

-Better safe than sorry, I usually wipe down with a 91% isop. Alc soaked paper towel and let it air dry, just cuz u never know where those bins came from.(aside from the factory..duhh) lol ^_^

Are the "Clorox" Disinfecting Wipes good to have around? They claim to kill 99.9% of bacteria in 30 seconds, has anyone used these in their practice before that can advise? I figured anything boasting that kind of claim couldn't hurt to have around!

Thanks again,
